Like all truly extreme artists, The Amenta has long been defined solely by its refusal to be defined. Formed in 2002 by Erik Miehs (Guitars) and Timothy Pope (Noise and Fx), now completed by Cain Cressall (Vocals), Robin Stone (Drums) and Dan Quinlan (Bass), the band quickly realised that their interests pointed more towards experimentation and a stubborn refusenik attitude. After countless overseas tours and a slew of uncompromising album releases 2013 sees The Amenta release their latest aurally assaulting LP Flesh Is Heir.

Formed in 2005, CLAIM THE THRONE have built a reputation for outrageous live performances and a unique style of metal. With a newly refined line-up in 2010, Triumph And Beyond displays the band at their peak with 12 tracks of fearless victory and its festive aftermath.

Known for their dynamic symphonic style of gothic black metal, along with the dark poetic lyrics from the hand of enigmatic front-man Dani Filth, Cradle of Filth formed in Suffolk in 1991 going on to become one of the UK’s most successful metal acts.
